Product Information

Ariel Elite Carbon comes equipped with a suspension fork that has the Fitness Brain technology for fast, efficient, and intuitive use over any surface. And to build on this blend of comfort and speed, the frame is built from our ultra-lightweight FACT 9r carbon fibre with a women's-specific geometry that's made to fit just right from the minute you get on the bike. Add in a mix of performance driven components from the likes of Shimano, powerful Tektro hydraulic disc brakes, and rack/fender mounts, and you'll be riding with confidence in no time—no matter where you choose to ride.
